Long lasting, easy to use, vibrant colours
I used All Fired Up, as part of the Sally Hansen trial team, so the colour went on top of a few layers of Diamond Strength, but it did last me for 3 days before even starting to chip, which is very long for me. I wouldn’t normally wear such a bright colour - this one was a vivid fire engine red (which my daughter felt looked a little scary!), and I’m really more of a neutral girl, but it looked very professional, glossy, and thick and really caught the eye - looking almost as good as the gelled nails my friend got done at the salon (I kept looking at my nails and stroking them as they were very smooth and nice looking!). The brush was a little wider and thicker than normal, but with very fine bristles that put on just the right amount, even for a butterfingers like me. The bottle is tidy and made of thick, light glass, with a simple look that calls attention to the colour.
I will certainly be repurchasing this product, maybe looking for the neutral sheerer colours. Either way, one coat is definitely sufficient so it’s quite good value and I felt that it also thickened and strengthened my nails, which was a nice bonus. I think this is a particularly good polish for those who struggle with polish and need an easy to use brush and have weak nails. I also think it helps to finish with a coat of 3D Gel Shine, which really amped up the polish and kept it looking super glossy. I was particularly pleased, since it looked so thick and rich on my nails, that it came off very easily with a single swipe of a cotton ball and remover. I was expecting a battle and didn’t get one!
This polish is ideal for anyone who likes a polish that lasts but is easy to remove, is very easy to use, has a great range of vibrant colours (the red is pretty intense) and doesn’t want to spend a fortune.

Big Cheer for Sally
An excellent product yet again from Sally!
Although I do think some of the brilliance is simply in the brush shape and size. It makes a huge difference to how I paint my nails.
I trialled the 550- All Fired up. A little too bright for my fingernails but really loved it on my toes. I will definitely be buying more from this range. Would highly recommend.

I received 'All Fired Up' as part of a Sally Hansen trial team, and even though I have reviewed this product before, this was a great reminder of just how amazing the Complete Salon Manicure polish is. All Fired Up is an orange/red shade I never would have chosen for myself, and to be honest I wasn't that fussed about it in the bottle, but when it was on my nails, I LOVED it. I had previously used Shoot the Moon in this range which is a shimmer. All Fired Up is a gel-finish. It's incredibly shiny, and has that gel like finish which looks amazing and is very forgiving to a shakey application.
This polish really is a complete salon manicure. The bottle is lovely and feels very luxurious with thick glass, then a lovely long handle, finished with a soft grip strip. The brush is flat and cut so that it is a semi-circle shape which makes application very quick and easy, and helps give that professional finish.
I used this polish both on it's own and with the rest of the Sally Hansen trial products (base coat and 3D gel top coat). The base and top coats do take the polish to the next level, but true to it's name you can use just the polish as a complete manicure.
All Fired Up gave acceptable coverage in just one coat, and a lovey deep colour with two coats. It was quick drying and very long lasting. Either with the base and top coats or on it's own, it lasted 7 days with only minor chips.
There are so many amazing colours in this range. I definitely need to get some more!

I have this in a red colour and it looks great on my toe nails. It has a good consistency and is easily applied. Two coats is all I need and an application can last up to six weeks on my toes before it starts to look shabby. I really like that it is very hard-wearing and long-lasting and has brightness and shine. I also really like that Sally Hansen do not use harmful ingredients in their products.
I have tried this product in multiple colours and find that the darker shades are ideal to use if your not great at applying polish as the brush strokes are not easily seen.

I love these polishes. The brush is wide and flat, which makes for easy application and minimal mess. There's a great colour selection, and they're pretty affordable.
I have three - and two have great formulas, but unfortunately one is very sheer.
I'll start with the positives.
Barracuda is a pretty baby bluey-greeny-minty colour. It's almost identical to Mint Candy Apple from Essie... but I prefer Barracuda as the brush is easy to work with and I can get away with 1-2 coats, unlike Mint Candy Apple where I need at least 2 thick coats. It's very quick to dry, even without me using my Sally Hansen topcoat.
I also have Cleared For Takeoff. This is a clear colour, but I wouldn't say it was a topcoat. I use this for when I want my nails to look shiny but don't want to waste my proper topcoats. Again, the formula is great and very fast to dry.
The one polish I don't like is one called Jaded. It's the most beautiful turquoise ever, but unfortunately it's just too sheer and requires at least FOUR coats, sometimes I have to apply five or six. I wish this was as pigmented as the others, as it is so beautiful.
Overall, I'd definitely recommend them. I'd check out swatches and how many coats are required though.

i bought 2 or 3 in this range and was so excited to try them asap. so the bottle shape is great and the brush too. but the shine and finish at the end was not that great. it didnt really feel or look like a salon look. havent used them again. and it seems to take forever to dry.

Best Nail Polish Ever
This is the best nail polish I've ever used. My nail care is sporadic and half hearted at best, but these help keep the quality of my nails.
With a wide brush to help minimise (my) errors, it's easy as to apply, has good staying power and there are gorgeous shades!
Using this for just a few days, my nails grow quickly and get stronger.
I even use my pale colours as a base coat under other nail polishes!
Can be used with one coat being enough for bright shades or two coats for a really strong colour. Pale shades - one coat can be quite sheer (but I like that) and two for solid colour.
Everyone! I recommend this to everyone, and bought my mum some for Christmas.

i am involve with sally hansen complete salon manicure. just to start it off, the wide brush tips are amazing and give you the ability to literally only use two strokes for a full nail coverage. the liquid is not too thick and not too thin, intact is the right consistency. in my opinion even one layer will do the job. it lasts a long time and does not chip!

Nice colours but a bit too goopy..
I actually won two different shades of this nail polish in a Beautyheaven competition. After using one of them (the color was Shell We Dance) I was a little disappointed with the product. I normally love Sally Hansen products but I felt that the actually nail polish consistency was way too goopy and kind of gluggy. So when I applied it to my nails the layers were wayy too thick. On the positive side the brush was awesome - really big - and the shades were really colorful and opaque. Overall I'm a little disappointed...

Bright and long lasting
Picked up two colours on my way to a destination wedding 2hrs drive away - had ran out of time for a proper mani.
It was the first time I tried this range and loved it.
The packaging is simple and you see exactly what you're getting.
The bottle itself is an attractive square-based glass bottle with a silver lid and rubber grip.
The instructions and ingredients are found on the back of the bottle - just peel the barcode label down from the top to reveal 3 mini pages of information.
The brush is thick and you can apply the formula easily and neatly in just a couple of strokes. The rubber grip also helps to keep a steady hand.
The smell of the polish itself is not as strong as many others.
The colours I chose were 560 Kook A Mango and 530 Back to the Fuchsia.
I have since used both of them for hands and feet.
1 layer in a rush gives great coverage and shine.
2 layers provides a beautiful finish. The double coat lasted a good 3 days before chipping on my hands and lasted 3 weeks on my feet (I often do not wear shoes so this was pretty amazing).
I did not wear a separate base or top coat with this formula.
It dried within 20 minutes of application.
